We started our visit with the infamous Darling Brewery Beer Tasting - 13 beers later, and we will do it again! We shared their meat and cheese platters which was just what we needed in between tasting beers. The atmosphere - feeling that you're sitting inside the brewery where all the action happens - just adds to the overall enjoyment.... More

We were a bit disappointed with how long it took for food and drink. Very loud at times, they may think that noises from the brewery add to the appeal, but it does not.

Management response:

Thank you for your honest feedback. We offer an authentic experience where our Tasteroom is located inside - on the side - of the working Brewery. This is a unique 'open-plan' experience that most of our patrons value and enjoy. We are sorry to hear that you had to wait a while for your food. With high season on us,... More

A very big interesting selection of beers. Our waiter was well informed regarding all the different beers for sale. The cheese platter was really good, and the fresh apple juice so divine.

If you are coming anywhere near Darling then this is a must. Clearly good for beer but great little menu of platters, burgers and others. Also has a kids playground; the only in Darling. Sadly uBer doesn't operate in Darling 😉
